obama wins the election, then right after the election, lame duck, the clock will start ticking and he will be under a lot of pressure to do something. let me say one other thing. you know, i think the most likely scenario is that we are actually going to have to go into next year, see tax rates rise for everybody, because it is then that we see enough economic pain that it generates political will necessary to do the kind of things we need to get done and -- that means that addressing our long-term fiscal problems which means cutting spending, and raising tax revenue to address long-term fiscal issues. >> thanks very much for coming in. >> thank you. >>> what's it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular be george w. bush? that's coming up next. also, what caused this deadly school bus crash outside of a high school? we have details. because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. togeth

. >>> all right. 33 minutes past the hour. our big story this morning, in just a few hours, president obama will address the united nations general assembly, the speech comes as israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has increased pressure on the white house to clearly set a red line for iran's nuclear program. joining me now from tel aviv is deputy speaker of the parliament, the knesset. thank you for joining us this morning. we appreciate your time. president obama will not be meeting with prime minister netanyahu. >> thank you. good morning. >> good morning to you. or any other heads of state while he is in new york. are you disappointed about that? >> yes, i think we are disappointed because prime minister netanyahu wanted to meet president obama to discuss with him the crucial issue of iran. i think it's a threat to the israelis but also to the americans. and only yesterday, we heard ahmadinejad saying very clearly, i want to wipe out israel but then he's going after the u.s. as well. i think they should have met in new york or d.c. hopefully there will be a meeting. >> i i want to

it. we have five minutes. we can negotiate a deal right here. do you favor the plan, senator obama? senator mccain, are you in favor of this plan? >> we have not seen the language yet. i think there is constructive work being done out there for the viewers who are watching. i am optimistic. the question i think we need to ask ourselves is how did we get into this situation in the first place? two years ago, i warned that because of the relaxed regulation, we would potentially have a problem in trying to stop the abuses and mortgages that were taking place at the time. last year, i wrote to the secretary of treasury to make sure he understood the magnitude of this problem and to call on him to bring all the stakeholders together to try to deal with it. the question i think we have to ask ourselves is yes we have to solve this problem short term. we will have to intervene. there is no doubt about it. but we will also have to look at how is it that we have shredded so many regulations, we did not set up a 21st century regulatory framework to deal with these problems, and that is in pa

of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> reporter: the republican ticket is hoping their bus tour will make up lost ground in ohio as polls hoe mitt romney trailing president obama in this pivotal swing state. in dayton tuesday romney hammered mr. obama on tacks. >> i admit this one thing he did not do in his first four years, he has said he is going to do in the next four years which is to raise taxes, and is there anybody that thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> reporter: an attack over tacks is actually a change for romney, who is often accused the president of raising taxes in his first term. romney is looking to jump-start his campaign with a good performance in the first debate one week from today. the man who plays mr. obama in romney's mock debate sessions, though, tried to lower expectations playing up the president's experience. >> he has been through a lot of those one-on-one debates with a republican. mitt has not, and you think about it, he hasn't had a real debate in ten years because these republic

in rwanda. now she goes to ethiopia and eulogizes the worst human rights abuser in africa. how can the united states to preach about human rights when their own ambassador are telling the world that -- it is a disgrace. i wish barack obama tells this woman that she is not representing the united states in the united nations. thank you very much. guest: thank you very much for that. i have to frame my answer with a disclaimer or a caveat. i have no susan rice since i was 12 years old. she was a year ahead of me at the girls' junior or senior high school across the way, growing up in washington, and she has been a friend of mine for quite some time. my sense -- trying to be a little dispassionate. my sense is that she has been a very effective u.n. ambassador. no question that she -- and she will admit it and committed a publicly -- she feels a tremendous burden about the situation in rwanda. in 1994, she was 30 years old. i believe she was at the national security council at the time before becoming assistant secretary of state for african affairs. she, along with many in the clinto

is there a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: we had a similar question, governor johnson, via twitter. what do you say? >> guest: well, right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets in the debates is the presidential debate commission, and guess what? the presidential debate commission is private, and they're made up of republicans and democrats with absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be, there doesn't seem to be much hope, but we filed on anti-trust grounds, something that has not been done before. >> host: how much do these debates matter, gary johnson, and what are you looking forward to hearing on wednesday? >> guest: well, the debates are tantamount to my having a chance at winning. without being on the debates, i think that, um, you know, you can just kind of close the lid on being able to win the campaign -- win the election.

and even the politicians like obama last night who said this isn't a mudslinging campaign, even though we can't change the super subs are right now, how do we change from mudslinging to actual information about the politicians will do if they are elected versus just killing other people's campaigns. >> you know it's funny -- [applause] your reform is hard because one way we tried to stop that, the nastiness was by requiring candidates to appear themselves and say i am alex and i approve this message. so now they go on and approve the message that is mudslinging. so you know, that doesn't help. you know, first of all i'm sorry that young people don't want to read more sources and get our information, but a friend of mine named steve who taught at m.i.t. now teaches at harvard were to talk about negative campaigning may be 10 years ago, 12 years ago and his conclusion, sadly for him and for my story is that a works. i don't know an answer, but i will say that i share your feeling. this particular campaign has been very light on serious vision. you know, it has been mostly used when talking

's not the congress, you're right, i've never been in congress, but i will be soon. but the congress did this and do that because obama did this and that. but let me tell you something. the constitution says that congress establishes the budget. so for you to stand here and say to you that you did not vote for this questor when you get -- this is not magical thinking. this is reality. i am not attacking you. i am describing you. it is a very difficult process. but i am trying. but you supported it and now you don't. there's a good reason why because you need to sit down and talk. >> moderator: let me ask one final question before we get to the concluding remark. that issue is one issue that has been on the virginia business community and the transportation infrastructure in virginia, virginia has been blessed to be called busted for doing business for a number of magazines for 10 or 15 or 20 years now. one of the issues that has arisen recently, they said we weren't doing enough for the transportation infrastructure. congressman cantor, is there anything that the federal government can be doing to a
